Education provides a strong foundation for New Zealand’s economic and social growth. However, innovative education technology is increasingly important in providing accessible and inclusive education.
The Education Technology Association of New Zealand (EdTechNZ) is the voice of EdTech in New Zealand, supporting the growth of the sector.
Our key purpose is to drive the creative use of technology, inside and outside the classroom, for better student outcomes. We aim to facilitate a world class education system for all New Zealanders and showcase local EdTech to the world.
Our members share a passion for the potential that education technology can bring for New Zealand’s prosperity. Members include EdTech companies, educationalists and training providers. Together, we provide an independent voice for the EdTech ecosystem.
EdTechNZ is a member of the New Zealand Tech Alliance and was launched in 2017. It is governed by an Executive Council.
